    You’ll need a tab to hold the KDP, a front cover gasket, and a crankshaft to front cover seal. Other than that, it’s just wrenching.

    I’d adjust the timing while I was in there.

    As far as the head gasket goes, no need to mess with it unless you have a problem currently or you are wanting to stud it or o-ring it. But there’s no need unless you’re going after big power numbers.

    Cummins power replaced the Ford "Brazillian" diesels in the early 90's. Probably after some good boardroom fights between Ford, Navistar, and Dodge LOL

    Higher strength head-bolt kits are also available... so are high strength Fastenal bolts. What you want to pay for is up to you.
